I am doing the SCD diet for my 3 year old son. After an initial herxheimer reaction of vomiting, fever and lethargy…he is starting to slowly improve. I have my own personal food diary for him, this blog is intended to reference the menu we are using. And on those days when I don’t know what to make for dinner, I can come here and pick something out easily.
My son has many food hypersensitivities showing on his IgG test results (27 foods) due to a permeable intestine or ‘leaky gut’. Therefore our recipes will include dairy free and egg free as well. My hope is after some healing he will be retested and will start to tolerate these forbidden foods. Then our recipes can expand.
The book this diet is based on is called ‘Breaking the Vicious Cycle’ by Elaine Gottshall.
**I did not invent most of these recipes, I am just taking photos of what we are eating along our journey. **
UPDATE: We are ending our 4th month of SCD and the progress has been nothing short of amazing! If you are currently responding to a GFCFSF diet, I urge you to try SCD and see if it takes you to the next level of intestinal and cognitive healing.
